Ha ha .. Its okay man, you have the right to ask .. Well he may just go to the US in a few months time for further academics , in which case, I'll dump the Carrera.. If he doesn't, he will then get the Maserati GTS and the Porsche in that case would be dumped again.. So in either case I am going to have to wait for some time.

AM V8 Vantage

Not in that order though and all that is for use in India. Add to that a Zonda F (hope I can find one as it is no longer in production) , the mighty Veyron, Corvette ZR1 and it goes on ..

For now I am seriously looking at a daily driver car for city use as the LP isn't practical for daily use. Am tossing up between the M3/ Maserati GTS/997 Turbo/AM V8 .. So all in all a broad spectrum.. Lets see what happens. May even consider the Chevy Challenger next year.
CHALLENGER! im coming over to where you live...

Ecks...do you think the top of the line Rangie or RR sport is under-powered? They would make good DDs if parking space was not an issue.

Weird alternative option: V10 diesel Touareg. Torque up the wazoo, you couldn't ask for more!

Ecks,
Just my 2 cents, are the RS4/RS6 a no no for you ? I didnt see you mention those as options. And Audi is also building its support here including in CHD.
cheers.

Dude, you wanna get this guy killed. Morni is not the best place to do this. Like roads are not good, people drive like crazy there. All ingredients are available at Morni for a perfect accident. So, its a no no for Lambo at Morni.

Lake road, road dividing sec. 9 and 10 and road in front of CM houses and Chandigah club are the best and the safest place to unleash this beast.

and as you need a "V" series car, why don't you get get a Indica V2 Tubo. Like you can drive it daily and you don't really have to worry about anything, specially the service.

Just joking, i'll suggest you to go with Camaro. It's the best looking car i have seen till date with great engine. I am sure its gonna be a "killer on road" when it comes to India.
